Anders Behring Breivik Sorry He Didn't Kill More

The Norwegian mass murderer apologized to militant nationalists in court today. He was declared sane and sentenced to 21 years in prison, though he can be declared a threat and kept longer than that. He'll have three cells and a psychiatric ward was built just for him, in case he is declared insane at a later time


Norwegian gunman Anders Behring Breivik apologized in court to "militant nationalists" for not having killed more than the 77 people he shot to death in a horrific spree last year.

Breivik was found sane at Friday's sentencing, denying prosecutors the insanity ruling they hoped would show that the massacre was the work of a madman, not part of an anti-Muslim crusade. Breivik smiled with apparent satisfaction when Judge Wenche Elisabeth Arntzen read the ruling, declaring him sane enough to be held criminally responsible and sentencing him to "preventive detention," which means it is unlikely he will ever be released.
